About Atlas Valley Country Club
With gently rolling hills, wooded surroundings, and Kearsley Creek all providing varying degrees of difficulty, the course at Atlas Valley is not only aesthetically pleasing but also quite challenging to golfers of all skill levels.
Golf has been played at "The Valley" since the early 1900s and the course has been changed on numerous occasions. In 2003 , the Henrickson Family will celebrate 50 years of ownership and today's course layout has existed virtually unchanged in that time.
The course is a traditional design, 6400 yards for the men and 5500 yards for the ladies, with nineteen bunkers and virtually no homes surrounding it. With the absence of development, the course offers a quite solitude, which can't be found anywhere else in Genesee County. The greens are relatively small with many subtle breaks that roll very true and usually very fast. The front nine is slightly more open with mature hardwood trees strategically placed, and two very challenging par three holes.
The back nine requires more accuracy on the tee shot as it is more tree-lined. The par five and risk / reward holes which can be reached in two shots but also present out of bounds and hazards that very much come into play. The par three's on the back are shorter but still quite challenging with elevation changes. The eighteenth is one of the more difficult short par fours that has left many players shaking their heads as they walk off the green!
All in all, Atlas Valley Country Club is an interesting and challenging course with great group of members and an efficient staff ready to serve all your needs.
